The new Nier game, now called NieR Automata, has been shown off today at Paris Games Week 2015.

Synopsis

Quote:During the during the 14th Machine Armament War in the year 11,939AD, humans are near extinction. With the invasion of the “Living Machines”, humanity had no choice but to abandon the planet, taking refuge upon the Moon. Their only hope lie in an armada of specially configured androids called “YoRHa”. Programmed with human emotions and feelings, they descend upon the surface of the planet to combat the ceaseless onslaught of the Machines.

With the destruction of No.1 in the decent to the planet, No.2 assumes command over all units… however reluctant and unsure of her own abilities. She remains this way throughout the entity of the play; she keeps her black “visor” on the longest…only taking it off in the final scene when she faces the machines on her own.

No.2, after witnessing the destruction of her unit and the last of the Resistance, a failed YoRHa expedition hundreds of years before her time, she is alone among a cold, unfeeling world ruled by machines.

Here's the gameplay trailer:

One can always expect quality games from Square Enix.
Most of the time.

This is a part of that most of the time, thankfully.

Ohh, this looks interesting. Would it be recommended to play the prior NieR game before playing this one? (Since I'm out of ways to play it on PS3...)

This isn't a direct sequel to NieR, but it's in the same universe. Some of the characters from the first game will appear, but the director himself said that even those who haven't played the first will have fun with it.

I'd recommend playing the first (or going through a longplay if you're unable to), though. The combat may be a bit dull, but the story and music are amazing.
